Bruce, Shareholder at New York based Farkouh Furman & Faccio (FF&F) and Guillermo, Partner at Villegas & Villegas in Monterrey, Mexico, have been appointed to the committee effective Sep 1 and will serve five-year terms.

The alliance’s four regional advisory committees form an important part of AGA’s governance structure by representing the members’ interests and views in their respective regions. Bruce and Guillermo take on roles that will see them become advocates for their respective region’s members on matters relating to the fast-changing accounting profession and evolving needs of clients, and the regional business community. Both will play an important role in supporting implementation of regional strategy.

Bruce and Guillermo join the Advisory Committee following the completion of successful tenures by Dave Wilson of Grant Bennett Associates in Sacramento and Mark Weber of SobelCo in New Jersey.

Bruce comments:

“It is an honor to be appointed to this position on the North America Regional Advisory Committee. Our alliance continues to appoint high calibre, independent professional firms that offer a wide range of expertise to domestic and foreign clients operating in North America and in all other world regions. I look forward to the challenge ahead and to helping set out AGA’s strategy to target and recruit further law and accounting firms in major commercial centers across the United States.

Guillermo said:

“As a member of the North America Regional Advisory Committee, I am delighted to be able to contribute to the strategic planning of our alliance and look forward to representing the interests and views of our growing alliance of market-leading independent law and accounting firms in Mexico and the wider North American region.”

Daryl Petrick, North America Regional Chair of Alliott Global Alliance, adds:

“Despite the challenges of recent years, the alliance has significant momentum in the North America region, and it is important that we continue to pursue our development targets. We are very thankful to Dave and Mark, who have been instrumental in guiding our vision over many years and helping to take the region to a new level.

“It is great to have Bruce and Guillermo on board and their appointment reflects our continued commitment to ensuring we have the right people on the team to help move us forward over the next few years.”

Giles Brake, Alliott Global Alliance’s CEO, said:

“The alliance is growing in North America, but our members and their clients continue to face unprecedented challenges in this post-COVID period - Bruce and Guillermo have strong reputations within and beyond AGA and will bring insights that ensure we remain relevant and ahead of the game in being responsive to the changing needs of member firms and their clients. I look forward to collaborating with our new team members in the years ahead.”
